    Inova has identified an issue with two lots of the ez-load lens delivery system ez-28v, an intraocular lens inserter used to insert sofport intraocular lenses (iols). some inserters have been found to have a hook-like flash located near the tip area. this flash catches the leading haptic causing a kink. whilst mildly bent haptics can be restored to acceptable configuration intra-operatively using surgical instruments, a severely kinked haptic which cannot be restored can result in injury to the intraocular structures.
